hat I'm grateful for today:
A clean house
All my mismatched furniture and decor so that my house can be my home. :)
U2-all music in general
Priesthood blessings
The knowledge I have of the restored gospel
My talents
My job
My husband and his cuteness
Warm weather
Nieces and nephews
A warm home
A car...or two :)
My health

OF COURSE there are so many more :)
This is all for now.
Peace and Blessins'


Best Day EVER...besides my wedding day :)


Let me tell you about the best day ever.
This last Tuesday.
Salt Lake City.
Rice Eccles Stadium.
The Edge.

From the moment they stepped out, to the moment they left, I had a big ol' smile on my face.
This was Randy's first concert. 
He loved it.
I wish that we had been on the floor with my family so we could have rocked out, but regardless of where you were, it was spectacular. 

I grew up listening to U2. In the car, at my house, anywhere. They were a staple and you could always find a CD of their's anywhere.

My favorite part was seeing sexy Larry.

Seriously check him out...Mmmmmm.

They are all shexy. Besides Adam...he's a little goofy looking. Just saying.

(Adam, the Edge, Bono, Larry)

Seriously they put on an AMAZING show. I didn't want to leave. They are so fun and love to engage with the crowd. It's funny. I feel like I know them personally. I see them on stage and I'm thinking, "Ya that's my boy Bono." :) I think if I met them though, I'd poop my pants. Seriously.

It's my dream.
(Not to poop my pants. To meet them.)

The thing I love most about them, is the music. Their lyrics are genius. 

"All I Want is You"
You say you'll give me eyes in the moon of blindness
A river in a time of dryness
A harbour in the tempest.
All the promises we make, from the cradle to the grave
When all I need is you.

He can promise everything on this world, but all I want and need is my Randy Shmmandy :)

Basically the whole song "Beautiful Day" is magic. My favorite part is: 
What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
You don't need it now, you don't need it now
Beautiful day

Okkkkkkk. I was going to do a bunch of songs, but there are too many that are just too awesome. Seriously though, words to live by. 

I listen to their songs and look at my life and wonder what I can change.

While at the concert, I realized that this world, including myself, is just so selfish and out of line with reality. I want to focus more on others and who and how I can help and life would be happier. Be grateful for what I have and for the things that I've been blessed to do and people I've met. God is good. He loves us and wants to bless us. All around us are blessings. Get out of our own little world and see what's going on around us. Have fun. Life a fun life and love the life you live. Play hard, work hard. Be kind. Be true. Be you.

Google them :)

Love you U2.


I Love Family and Idaho and Pictures :)

So basically,
Randy and I can't wait to move back to Idaho.
Obviously, it will be awhile.
But we just love it so much.
We love our small town:
Nice People
No Speed Demons
...you get the point.
Utah is nice it really is.
Just not for us
So today. I was putting on my makeup and doing my hair and my niece came in and watched me, and wanted some too. So we did makeup and hair together. She is a doll. Not shy AT ALL. Loves everyone and can find anyone to play with. We should all be more like that. Just saying.
And then a nephew comes in and says, "My mom sometimes puts makeup on me too."
It made me laugh out loud.
I love the nephews and nieces I "inherited" by marrying Randy.
I love all darndest things they say and the hilarious made up words, stories, etc.
So fun and so cute.

Today, I took my sister and her friends on a photoshoot for her birthday. Super fun girls. We just went up to Idaho Falls and walked around taking pictures.
you'll have to check my picture blog for updates!

Kind of taking a break from pictures for awhile. Too much going on in the last couple of weeks and weeks to come. Sorry!

Hmmm. SO guess what world.

I changed my major to Photography.
I'm happy...except not looking forward to the drawing class. . . . hahaha I'm not so good at that.

Well. Just wanted to leave a little blurb :)

Peace and Blessins'



Almost done!

So I'm pretty much regretting that last post. In fact- I'm deleting it. Sometimes it just feels good to let it all out. I apologize to those who read it. We were just having so much going on and it was so frustrating.


It's almost reveal time of all the painting and carpeting. (it's not going to be AMAZING, but it's a change.)

What we've been up to:
Keegan called Sunday. It was so good to hear his voice and talk for a bit. I only got to talk to him for literally 2-3 minutes. But it's all good. My parents were the ones that really needed to talk to him and ask him questions.

Randy started his summer semester. He's glad he's not taking a ton of classes because his Physics class is killing him!

We planted our flower bed. It looks so good!

We started our vegetable/fruit garden, but we still have lots to do!

We've got new carpet in and it's luxurious ;)

We've got all the rooms but our bathroom painted.

I'll be starting school in the fall and really I'm already half way done. All my classes transferred and it was SHWEET!

hmmmmm that's really all. We're kind of lame :)

Peace and blessins'
